PEERS Family Development Center offers the following programs:
The Incredible Years Basic Parent Training Series
Incredible Years training programs give parents and teachers strategies to manage behaviors such as aggressiveness, ongoing tantrums, and acting out behavior such as swearing, whining, yelling, hitting and kicking, answering back, and refusing to follow rules.
Through using a range of strategies, parents and teachers help children regulate their emotions and improve their social skills so that they can get along better with peers and adults, and do better academically. It can also mean a more enjoyable family life (copied from incredibleyears.com).
Adolescent Parenting Program
This program serves first time moms through case management, group meetings, home visits and other services. The program strives to help pregnant or parenting teens finish high school and delay a second pregnancy while establishing a positive parent-child relationship and reducing the risk for abuse or neglect of children. See more details about this program.
Parent Education Enhancement
Parent Education Enhancement offers parent trainings for both prevention of child abuse and intervention in families with higher levels of need. We all know that parenting is a tough job, and through classes like the Nurturing Parent Program, parents learn strategies for parenting that help lead to positive outcomes for children and families.
